Hearing benefits and hearing aid discount

Take advantage of routine hearing coverage and a discount on hearing aids

Most UPMC for Life plans include routine hearing coverage! Members enrolled in these plans have a $0 copay for a routine hearing exam, a hearing aid fitting, and a discount for hearing aids.

  • One hearing exam per year
  • One hearing aid fitting exam every year
  • $690-$1,890 for one hearing aid per ear per year. You can choose from different types of hearing aids based on quality and cost. To get this important discount, make sure to use a hearing provider that participates with Amplifon. You could save $6,734 on average for your hearing aids (depending on the hearing aids you choose).

In most cases, you are responsible for all other charges beyond routine care. Hearing care copays and the hearing aid discount are excluded from the yearly deductible, if applicable, and do not count toward the annual maximum out-of-pocket.
